## Density – the Reason the Titanic Sank

Putnam City

### Engage

• Teacher Demo – Can you make an orange sink?

### Explore

• Students measure the mass and volume of water, plot data on a graph, and derive the density formula

### Explain

• Students predict if objects will float or sink based on density and explain their reasoning

### Elaborate

• Students will sink leaf disks. As the leaves produced oxygen during photosynthesis, they will rise.

### Evaluate

• Writing prompt –

• Using what you have learned about density, think about a career where the concept of density is important. Write at least 5-7 sentences about the career and how the concept of density is used.
